I just wanted to let you know that your page on how to clean bearings is awesome. I really appreciate the time that you guys took to inform us in a simple and easy but still detailed manner on how to clean bearings. I recently bought the Bones Swiss bearings which work beautifully. I can't wait to clean them and see even better results. Thank you very much!

Bones are so good. They are my racing bearing of choice.
Thank you so much for making these bearings. I ride Bones Swiss Ceramic and I love them so much. They're super fast and they last so long! Once again, thanks for making these amazing bearings.
— Ryan Johns
I skated Bones REDS and mistakenly switched to another brand. To my surprise, it never had the same performance with the REDS. I'm back using REDS and I'm not looking back.
Bones REDS are awesome. I love them.
Love these bearings!!!!

Bones Swiss Six bearings are fast. You will be pushing easy. I've skating them for a year. Best bearings.
— Kelvin “kel” Nieves
Bones Bearings are simply the best. I'm riding REDS which are way better than any other bearing in that price-range, but soon I'm gonna buy a set of Swiss Ceramics!
I own a set of Bones Super Swiss 6 bearings and love them so much. Best bearings ever.
— Devon “D” Schamp
I cannot thank you guys enough! The bearings you make are incredible! I bought a set of REDS 2 years ago and I've only cleaned them twice, they're are still spinning incredibly! I'm quite an aggressive rider and yet they've outlasted 2 of my boards so far and I don't think they'll be breaking anytime soon. Thank you!

I live in Finland where the winters are freezing cold and it rains all spring, summer and autumn. Talmacs are rough as hell and there is dirt everywhere. Casual bearings sorry to say including REDS only lasts about a year. I purchased my first Swiss Labyrinth four years ago and first one broke couple weeks ago. I ordered Swiss Ceramics and can't wait to see how awesome those are. With Swiss it's like they almost generate movement as those tend to roll so long and far!
Bones REDS are unbelievably good bearings at a great price. I really respect George Powell for bringing so much Bones Swiss quality down to a price most skaters can afford. I have used Swiss for years, and I am prepared to pay that premium, but when I put together some skateboards for my kids I tried Reds. They are great! I wish every skater was smart enough to avoid "hype" brands and instead buy Bones products. George is the genuine skate guru in this industry.

I just went out and bought some Bones REDS bearings and they were so smooth down my rocky street and didn't even really need to be broken in.
— Jorge “Da beast” Zuniga
I have ridden 2 sets of Original Swiss with the shields off and they go faster than ever and they lasted me for a year already. Much love from MN.
— Dylan “Coconut Head” Tran
Best bearings in the world! I got Bones Swiss bearings a year ago and I always think they're fresh out of the box! (I skate everyday in water, etc.)
— Henry Lee
I just wanted to say that you guys make the utmost highest quality longboard bearings there are on the face of the Earth. Were you aware of that? I absolutely LOVE your bearings and they have lasted me so long. All I have to do to maintain them is run them through some solvent every week or two and they work like new always! Thank you so much for existing! Much love from Massachusetts.
— Charles “Chuck” Rock
I've had my Bones Swiss for like 4 years now. They are just now coming to a stop and it's because they have been put through so many tests of dirt water everything, I'm going to buy another set of them because they work so well... best ones out there.
— tucker “T.N.T” tyoe
Bones REDS bearing are the best bearing out in the market. I have ridden them since the first day I picked up a board. They give you the speed and lasting time you want. I have been skating for about 4 years and I have only used 2 sets. I don't clean them every month. I clean them like once a year and they are still amazing. Keep up the good work.
— juan napoles
The first time i tried my Bones REDS they changed my life. I now see what you mean when you say an abec rating cannot sustain the engineering that goes into these things. I'm planning on buying myself some Bones Swiss. I was wondering if there was a big difference between the Bones Swiss and the ceramic variant in terms of extreme speeds. Thanks to all of the bros and bro-ettes down at Bones. You guys are the bomb. Cheers!
— Elvis “Fat-E” Matovina
I've ridden my Bones for about a 3 months now and absolutely have no problems with my Bones Bearings. I've ridden Spitfire but its not worth it. Bones are great bearings for street skating.
Hey!, I love your bearing products which are basically the best bearings around. I've been riding them ever since I heard about them and I love them.
— Pablo “Paul” Quezada
Greatest bearings ever!
— Mike “Mo” capaldi , Girl Skateboards Team
At first, I thought Bones REDS could never be so good. I mean, they were so inexpensive. But I took my friend's word for it, and now, I will never buy anything but Bones. They spin ridiculously fast and long. I'm looking forward to buying Bones Swiss, but that won't be for a long time, because they're so expensive. (I play roller hockey, so I need to buy TWO sets.) However, despite the price tag, I believe that the Bones Swiss will be the best investment I will ever make in hockey; I mean, what can I say, the cheap Reds work wonders. The expensive Swiss is going to work better, right? Buy them.
I love your bearings. I blow my friends away with the speed and the long spinning quality.

Hey guys! I just wanted to say I've been riding Bones Swiss Ceramics in my longboard for a year now... nothing has ever compared... P6B3M7
— Marshall “Marshall” Gagnon
Just got a new set of REDS for a new setup, just wanted to thank Bones for always making a sick product. I'm going skating! yew.
— mathew “matt” forster
I don't even know how any other bearing companies are still in business!!
Hey guys! About a year ago my dad bought me a Sector 9 Pintail Longboard, best present ever! But the standard bearings were noisy, and I never knew how to open up the shield to clean them, so in the end they were extremely dirty and damaged. I went over to the skate shop and bought myself some Bones Reds (I live in Switzerland so they cost 39 bucks :/). After installing them, I went for a test ride. They were AMAZING! And the shield is easy to remove so i can clean them without any problem. I am definitely a lifetime supporter for Bones bearings, and I am never going to buy from a different company :)
— Amedeo “Bigfoot” de Pretto
I love your bearings they are the best i have ever skated!
— elliot “elliot” wilkinson
Just set up a board with new non-bones bearings. It really felt horrible, like I was riding through tar. What a sad ten dollar mistake. Please accept my apologies.
Easy, simple way to effectivly clean bearing without harming the product.
— Daniel “D.K.” Kennedy
I have 2 sets of the original Bones Swiss for 2 of my boards. Both go faster than ever and they last a long time.
— Dylan “Coconut Head” Tran
I just ordered a set of Swiss Ceramics so I can ride faster and farther with less energy and is it true that a combo of the bearings and new race formula wheels can do that.
— stephen mroz
Couldn't decide whether to buy Bones Swiss Six or Bones Swiss Ceramics because they each have their own advantages (one has six balls for less friction and the other ceramic balls for more durability and less heat). So why don't you guys make Bones Swiss Six Ceramics? Wouldn't those be the fastest and most durable bearings on the market?
— Timothy “Tim”
When I used to have my Bones Swiss Bearings they were the best I ever had. I recommend them to everyone. Please buy them. They are the best of best.
— Gary “J Dog” Diaz , None
Your Bones Swiss Ceramics are awesome man. They help me travel very fast on my longboard.
Swiss Ceramics - best bearings ever. They spin for a very long time and are totally silent. Not overpriced at all!
— David “Dave”
Hey, I'm just taking the time to write you guys to say I love everything about this company I buy all the products and can't get enough of it. I find it hard to find where I'm at so I usually buy all this stuff online which is good coming straight to my home I wish that you guys keep the sweet stuff coming for years.
I started with a pair of REDS, and hit 25kmh then upgraded to the Ceramics, hit 40kmh!!!
— Tyler “Staples” Samsel
First time I've tried Bones REDS and I wouldn't choose any other bearings out there! It was unbelievable how smooth, quiet and fast it was! I'm like addicted to them. Haha.
Definitely buying HEAPS more!
I bought my first set of Bones Bearings today. It was the best 18 dollars of my life!
